John M. Murphy Scholarship

The John M. Murphy Scholarship was established in 2004 by the family and friends of John Murphy. Mr. Murphy was born in Circleville, West Virginia. Although he no longer lives in the area, the Mountain State, specifically Pendleton County, continues to hold a special place in his heart. With this in mind, the scholarship was created to help a student from Pendleton County reach his/her dream of pursuing education beyond secondary school in the field of biology, environmental science, or ecology. The recipient of the John M. Murphy Scholarship will receive a $500 award that will be made payable directly to the student’s college at the start of the freshman year.

Don't Forget:

  • Majoring in either biology, ecology or the environmental sciences
  • Attach a typed résumé. NOTE: Résumé should be in a professional format as if applying for a job.
  • Mail an official transcript from all schools--high schools and colleges--attended. If your ACT/SAT scores are not included on your transcript, please send them along with the application materials. The transcript should be included in an envelope with an official seal or the guidance counselor/registrar's signature written across the seal of the envelope.
  • Mail two evaluation forms. At least one form must be from a teacher. Both forms should be in separate envelopes with the recommender's signature written across the seal of the envelope.

DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 28, 2014
